I'm really happy to have finished this painting which I have been planning for ages. Before living in Sweden, I worked and traveled extensively abroad as a dive instructor living in such idyllic locations such as Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo and Indonesia. Sometimes the trips for scuba diving would be on a live-aboard boat being at sea for 4 or 5 days, and watching the changing view from your cabin window. It can be just as amazing and beautiful as the view from under the waves.
This is from my impressions of a trip to Burma with many islands being deserted habited only by wild animals, coconuts palms, sandy beaches and not much else. I wanted to keep a rustic feel to the woodwork with a brass porthole cover giving the view. I have a few others planned for the future as it was such fun to create.
